A central NY family’s LEGO set based on the film “It’s a Wonderful Life” has received enough votes to be considered as an official LEGO set.
Syracuse.com reports the proposed set reached the 10,000 votes needed for consideration Friday. The company has a set of procedures under which any proposed set that gets 10,000 votes is considered for production. “Welcome to the 10K club! Your project will now be reviewed by our experts,” the toy brick building company’s website says.

The set features a replica of the Granville house from the 1946 film, where each floor can be removed to see memorable scenes including the Christmas tree (and bell) in the living room and the “George Lassos the Moon Drawing” on the second floor. It also includes the famous truss bridge where George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) contemplates suicide; George’s car; a sign that says “You are Now in Bedford Falls”; and Minifigures of the entire Bailey family (George, Mary, Pete, Tommy, Janie and Zuzu) along with Mr. Potter in a wheelchair and the angel Clarence.
Jason Middaugh of Marcellus and his family came up with the idea. If it’s approved, they’ll be invited to collaborate with the company on the design of the set and it will become and official LEGO product available in stores.
